Movie Reviews

  • we have plenty of information about the idea of the Notorious BIG, but "Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell" offers a rare look at the actual human being behind the legend
    3.5 of 5 by Jeff Ihaza [Rolling Stone ]
  • this Netflix release is the first to successfully sidestep the quicksand of murder mystery, and focus instead on what Wallace accomplished in life
    4 of 5 by Ellen E. Jones [The Guardian ]
  • The Notorious B.I.G. was too good to be true -- we know we were spoilt when he blessed the earth with his flow. "Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell" reminds audiences of his greatness and that the rapper was truly a king
    3.5 of 5 by Daniel Hart [Ready Steady Cut ]
  • the musical aspects and recording-industry anecdotes that pepper the film are terrific, but it's the life rather than the career that's truly moving, sometimes funny
    by John Anderson [Wall Street Journal ]
  • it's satisfyingly rich in anecdotal detail; A Netflix documentary is bold enough to believe that Biggie's transition from teen crack dealer to '90s hip-hop sensation is more interesting than dwelling too much on his tragic end
    by Chris William [Variety ]
  • Emmett Malloy's Notorious B.I.G. Netflix doc is intimate but familiar; Wallace had a real story to tell, and Malloy's film serves as a harsh reminder that no one will ever be able to tell it better than he did
    Review rate : C by David Ehrlich [IndieWire ]
  • an intimate doc recalls both the life and the art of a Hip-Hop legend; "Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell" celebrates an influential musical legacy as well as a complicated life story, with a potent mix of sentiment and aesthetic appreciation
    by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap ]
  • "I Got a Story to Tell" is a must for anyone who came up in the 1990s, anyone who'd like to learn about hip-hop from that era, and anyone interested in learning about an artist who tragically went out right at the top of his game
    by Johnny Loftus [Decider ]
